Madison Police Chief Noble Wray
"I would like to hear more of an explanation from Governor Walker as to what exactly was being considered, and to what degree it was discussed by his cabinet members," said Chief Noble Wray. "I find it very unsettling and troubling that anyone would consider creating safety risks for our citizens and law enforcement officers."
In the 20-minute chat, Walker admitted he considered planting troublemakers in the huge crowd of peaceful protesters at the State Capitol.
The Wisconsin governor took a call from a man identifying himself as the über wealthy Republican donor, David Koch. It was actually the left-leaning blogger, Ian Murphy, which we had on our show last night.
The Madison Police Department has nothing but praise for protesters. "Crowd behavior has been exemplary, and thousands of Wisconsin citizens are to be commended for the peaceful ways in which they have expressed First Amendment rights," the department told a local paper.
Though, the governor said he wasn’t phased by the prank and has nothing to be ashamed of as far as specific talking points go.
